Welcome to Adventum Coupe!
British style icon now available as bespoke coupe
• Designed by car designer Niels van Roij
• Coachbuilt in limited series
• Built by coachbuilder Bas van Roomen
• Initiative by coachbuilding connoisseur Maurik van den Heuvel
Niels van Roij Design, famous for the recently unveiled Tesla-based Model SB and the Breadvan Hommage, unveiled Adventum Coupe. The design studio has designed this 2-door model based on the world’s best SUV, equipped with 5.0 Supercharged V8 and has also overseen the construction process. Designer Niels van Roij: “The original, first generation of this British icon was launched in 1970 and is exemplary automotive design work”. When the SUV was introduced, it was only available in a two-door body until 1981, when a 4-door version was introduced. The flagship model of this ultimate four-by-four is now in its fourth generation, which was never produced as two-door in this generation.
Adventum Coupe: carefully curated and personalized
“The bespoke Adventum Coupe is a real design statement with a distinctive, custom-made aluminum bodywork, built by coachbuilder Bas van Roomen. Unique personal ideas can also be added to the hand-produced exterior, such as subtle ventilation openings in the fender and the bonnet. The interior can be equipped with the finest materials. Van Roij explains: “In a co-design process with the future owner, we shape exterior and interior. We process the finest materials, such as Tweed, teak and lambswool. We make it so personal that even the favourite pinstripe from the owner’s suit can be incorporated into the interior.” The construction of the first Adventum Coupe has now been completed. According to Van Roij, every coachbuilt commission will be carefully composed: “If desired, each Adventum Coupe can have striking materials and colour schemes for both interior and exterior.
One-off car design and coachbuilding
Everything is possible: from unique fuel filler caps, duotone exterior paints, highly polished wood on the dashboard, personalized tread plates to colour-matched leather in chic patterns. Even refined embroidery is a possibility.” The body panels of Adventum Coupe, hand-beaten in aluminum by Van Roomen, differ from the A-pillar to the C-pillar, compared to the mass production model on which the car is based. Only the bonnet, fenders and boot lid are shared with the regular car. The front door has been completely redesigned: the previously existing vertical imitation ventilation openings are not returning in the design of Adventum Coupe. “Because: form follows function.” says Van Roij. “This new look visually extends the car. The shutlines of the door actively contribute to a more elegant side view. The interior has also been largely redesigned due to the major changes to the exterior.”
